RAW Power. PRO Editing.



Getting Started with ACR

Imagine you’ve captured breathtaking landscapes or stunning portraits, but your camera only tells part of the story. That’s where Adobe Camera Raw, or ACR for short, steps in as your photo editing secret weapon. ACR lives within Photoshop, ready to unlock the full potential hidden inside your raw image files. The best part? It edits like a dream, leaving your precious original files untouched!

Exploring the Interface

ACR’s interface is designed for intuitive photo editing. The central area serves as your main image viewer, where you can view your photos in detail. A filmstrip located below the image viewer facilitates browsing and selecting different images within your project. Moving to the right side of the program window, you’ll find a collection of editing tools neatly grouped together. These tools empower you to make adjustments to exposure, white balance, and other fundamental image properties.

Tackle Basic Adjustments

ACR makes editing your photos a breeze. The auto settings help you get started with lighting and color, but this tutorial dives deeper! We’ll teach you creative techniques like texture enhancement and color grading to transform your photos into eye-catching works of art.

Fix White Balance

Fortunately, Adobe Camera RAW makes it easy to adjust white balance and bring back rich, realistic colors.Follow along as we explain how to use the power of ACR to make quick adjustments to your RAW images for perfect color, every time.

Perfect Exposure Every Time

  1. What an enjoyable way to learn something. I find it best to watch each video through first. There’s no waffle. Aaron gets straight to the point and keeps a brisk pace right through. Then I try the exercises, check back with the video if necessary, do more exercises and voilà, I’m a master. (well…you know what I mean😊).

  2. As always, these are tutorials that are packed with information. Presentation is well thought out and quickly paced.

  3. Great course. However, there is one thing that really distracts while watching videos: Aaron’s own video hovering over the program. No instructor does that across the whole course. Aaron’s own video even hides portions of the program and most of the times it’s really irritating. Hope you get my point.

  4. A brilliant tutorial as always .. I always learn something new.

  5. Great tutorial. Covers all essentials from Camera Raw in a logical, got to follow order. Aaron is still one of my favorite teachers for photoshop and lightroom. Great Job

  6. I have been using ACR for many years. The new computational features are great!, and I learned some new tricks and shortcuts from this tutorial. Thanks Aaron
